BJ'S BLOG 06/07/13 "No More Celebrity Rehab"
Last week on the show, we talked about a TV show that is ending, and the circumstances are reasonable.
Dr. Drew Pinsky from "Celebrity Rehab" says that he has no plans on continuing the show because of the stress of the job.
He said during an interview, "I'm tired of taking all the heat -- it's just ridiculous."
"To have people questioning my motives and taking aim at me because people get sick and die because they have a life-threatening disease -- if Rodney King has a heart attack I have to take the blame for that? That's literally what's happening these days.”
He also said, "Treating addiction is treating addiction, and we had a program that was second to none. We could handle anything ... We were good -- we did that for 20 years. That's enough, I think."
It is completely unfair that people blame Dr. Drew for something that happens all the time! He’s there to help them as much as he can, but he can’t prevent them all from passing away!
If you watch the show you know that they never glorify the addictions and shows the harsh realities of these people’s problems. I’m very appreciative that this show has been on air because I have learned a lot about what these people go through.
This is a horrible problem that people die from and it’s ridiculous that Dr. Drew is being blamed for just trying to help.
